What I’ve been watching this week – November 4
Ex on the Beach
The latest season of Ex on the Beach finished up a few weeks ago, but I hadn’t been able to get to the last few episodes until this week. I liked this season better than last season, but it’s still missing the charm of the British version.
Ex on the Peak is arriving in December. Based on the cast and previews I’ve seen, I have high hopes for that.
The Challenge has been really stellar this season. I always look forward to watching the newest episodes. It’s kind of nice that a lot of the big names went out early so it gives other characters a chance to shine.
The latest episode was, uh, not my favourite I’d say. The Jordan-Turbo fighting storyline is just not for me. And I don’t know how much longer I can take Cara Maria’s sanctimoniousness. To hear me talk all about the latest episode, check out the Dom and Colin podcast with Matt and Brian here.

This season has been perfection. Everything about it has been wonderful. It’s been an absolute joy to watch. The latest girl groups episode was my favourite of the season. It felt very true to girl groups, and was an interesting and fun challenge. I really hope this spark can be injected into the new US season of the show.
